Description

The second Jackson Brodie novel (after Case Histories)- literary crime from the prizewinning, number-one bestselling author of Big Sky and Transcription.

‘An absolute joy to read…the pleasure of One Good Turn lies in the ride, in Atkinson’s wry, unvanquished characters, her swooping, savvy, sarcastic prose and authorial joie de vivre’ Guardian

It is summer, it is the Edinburgh Festival. People queuing for a lunchtime show witness a road-rage incident – a near-homicidal attack which changes the lives of everyone involved. Jackson Brodie, ex-army, ex-police, ex-private detective, is also an innocent bystander – until he becomes a murder suspect.

As the body count mounts, each member of the teeming Dickensian cast’s story contains a kernel of the next, like a set of nesting Russian dolls. They are all looking for love or money or redemption or escape- but what each actually discovers is their own true self.

One Good Turn: (Jackson Brodie) By (author) Kate Atkinson ISBN:9780552772440

Short-listed for British Book Awards: Crime Thriller of the Year 2007
